The Top 4 Christmas Markets in Suffolk in 2021

Where has this year gone – 2021 has flown by and now it’s that time of year again where the Christmas blogs start appearing like Mariah Carey on shopping centre soundsystems! In the second Christmas blog of 2021, let’s talk about Christmas markets to truly get in the Christmas spirit.

  1. Christmas Market – Trinity Park – 4th December 2021

Trinity Park Conference & Events Centre, located on a huge expanse of land just outside of Ipswich, is home to a fantastic Christmas market in Suffolk that has plenty to offer. On display from across the region there will be 70 small businesses joining together for the day to sell their amazing high quality festive foods and crafts which will be perfect for presents for friends and family. What’s more, Santa and his elves have come from the North Pole for the day to Trinity Park, so, whilst you can, make sure you can get to Santa’s Grotto to make sure he knows what you would like for Christmas. And it is all for a good cause – this Christmas Market, organised by Helen Rollason Cancer Charity, will give its proceeds towards organising and giving quality cancer care to patients. So, head down to Trinity Park on the 4th December to support a fantastic charity whilst getting your Christmas shopping sorted!

  1. Suffolk Farmers Market – Trinity Park – 11th December 2021

The second Trinity Park Christmas Market to feature on this list, and taking place a week after the first, is ‘The Christmas Suffolk Farmers Market’. The market will take place on Saturday 11th December 2021 and will offer a wide range of locally produced food, such as cheeses, pork, gins, freshly baked pies, bread and cakes, and much more food besides. You’ll easily be able to browse and buy a variety of handmade and homemade crafts, such as wrapping paper, candles and much more – perfect presents or accessories ready for the 25th December. 

  1. Heveningham Hall – Heveningham – 4th December 2021

On the 4th December 2021, from 2pm to 7pm, Heveningham Hall will come to life when it plays host to a multitude of different events. There are many stalls on offer, with a range of different foods and festive gifts, as well as Christmas Trees if you are in need of one, and the chance to go visit Santa’s Grotto – so, make sure your Christmas lists are written out and finalised so they can be posted to Father Christmas. Furthermore, why not try Santa’s Fun Run to raise money for Wenhaston Primary School. For ages 15 and over, there is the 5km multi-terrain race, where you will be provided with your own Santa outfit for the race, and, for the younger ones, there is a 2km multi-terrain race for ‘Santa’s Little Helpers.’

Suffolk is spoilt for choice for Christmas markets in 2021 – so why not go and try one of them and pick up anything you need last minute when staying at one of our Barns and Barges for rent.
